We are always thrilled to welcome new collectors into our wonderful hobby. This week we were pleased to meet a very special young man. Jacob came in with his dad to look at some coins for his collection. He told me that he specializes in Lincoln cents, but he has nothing before 1944 and he would love to acquire some older coins. I had to ask this very precocious eight-year-old how long he has been collecting coins and he very proudly told me "oh, I have been collecting for a few days now!" Talk about new to the hobby!
